FREE Expert Solution

We have to name the acid HNO3.


Recall that acids come in two different forms: Binary acids and Oxyacids (or oxoacids).

  • A binary acid is a compound that contains an H+ ion with a negative ion such as Cl- or Br-.
  • An oxyacid is a compound that contains an H+ ion connected to a polyatomic ion containing oxygen such as NO3- or SO42-.


HNO3 is an oxyacid because it contains a polyatomic ion, nitrate (NO3-).
